Teaching Tips

Positives

  • This is a great resource for virtual or online learning as it contains a Google Doc worksheet and online reading links.
  • This video is excellent and engaging because it comes from the perspective of youths. Furthermore, it has a balance of hope and reality.

Additional Prerequisites

  • Teachers need to create a free account to access the materials.
  • After creating a free account, launch the resource to find the proper chapter video. 

Differentiation

  • Consider using this video as an example of a first-person narrative in ELA classes.
  • This resource from NOAA goes deeper into the global, human-caused climate change impacts on food, livelihoods, infrastructure, and human health.
    • This can be used in conjunction with the video as it discusses the impact on farming, urban infrastructure, and development. This gives students additional points of information in learning about the impacts of climate change.
  • This resource found on SubjectToClimate goes deeper into how climate change can cause more extreme weather and harm people on a global scale. The impact of climate change is not always immediate but can manifest in extreme weather events and disturbances at different magnitudes, categories, and scales that may be dismissed by deniers.
Scientist Notes

The resource is suitable for climate justice advocacy. Taking political action by voting the right people into power and not climate deniers is important. This resource is recommended for teaching.
